I have to admit when I first saw this recipe I thought it looked good, then when I saw the recipe the day I made it, I thought it looked terrible. As I started cooking the dish I wasn’t impressed! It was seriously ugly and seemed to have too much cream cheese in it.

BUT hold the phone! The flavor is incredible. I love the bell pepper in it. I never thought it would be the dominate flavor in the recipe but wow pairing it with the bacon is the perfect combination.

I really loved this recipe. The original recipe called for 1 bar of cream cheese but I think the next time I make it I will only use ½ of a bar. 

  • 8 bacon slices, chopped
  • 4 cups fresh sweet corn kernels
  • 1 medium-size white onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cubed (I would start with 1/2 then add more)
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  1. Cook chopped bacon in a large skillet until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Set bacon aside.
  2. Sauté corn, onion, and bell peppers in hot drippings in skillet over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until tender. 
  3. Add cream cheese and half-and-half, stirring until cream cheese melts. Stir in sugar, salt, and pepper. Top with bacon
